About this property

This Tranquil Cottage is Just for Two.. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Set amidst tranquil 'bocage' countryside, and overlooking the River Benaize, this cottage is just for 2. Birds of prey soar over the fields, coypu swim in the river (as do trout and carp), deer roam freely and birdsong is everywhere. The cottage is comfortably furnished and the living room opens out onto decking overlooking the River Benaize. Sit and relax here, listening to the peaceful 'ker-plunk' of the water flowing over the site of the old mill race. Or watch the sun go down while sipping a glass of wine with your barbeque (gas).

The Owner Recommends

Les Herolles Monthly Market

Unmissable, ancient, monthly market at Les Herolles held on the 29th of each month (or the Monday if the 29th is a Sunday). High end artisanal market selling absolutely everything from wines, cheeses, meats and fruit and vegetables to livestock and farm machinery. Not to forget handmade soaps, furniture, clothes, fabrics and on-site dining. An experience!
